TALLAHASSEE — The Florida Highway Patrol will be out in full force during the Memorial Day holiday
weekend, which begins today and extends through midnight Monday.
“Troopers will be out in full force this weekend and will be on the lookout for aggressive driving, speeding, red
light running and driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs to make the roadways as safe as possible for
weekend travelers,” said FHP Director, Col. David Brierton.
All uniformed FHP personnel, including those normally assigned to administrative duties, will be patrolling
interstates and other major state roads throughout the four-day holiday period. FHP Auxiliary and Reserve
troopers will volunteer to augment the Patrol’s forces during the holiday enforcement period, too. This strategy
will increase the Patrol's presence on major arteries throughout Florida in an effort to deter traffic violators and
to provide enhanced service to motorists who break down while traveling or need other assistance. Please
remember to dial *FHP (*347) from your cell phone to contact FHP to report an aggressive driver or to request
roadside assistance.
